Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Praha Prague
The Grand Hotel Praha is perfect.
This is an amazing hotel. Not only is the location absolutely brilliant in its centrality (and for people watching--right on the square), but the rooms are incredible. We especially loved the beautiful hard wood floors, carved bed and tables, those lovely European individual feather beds that envelope you, the separate rooms for tub/sink and shower/toilet/bidet, two huge armoires, and the sauna upstairs. And the free channel of adult programming, but don't tell anyone. Our room faced the astronomical clock, but despite the crowds, the noise level in our room was next to zero. We also got an amazing rate (4 nights for the price of 3), which put it at less than half the average rate posted here on Trip Advisor. We will never stay anywhere else in Prague if we can help it. They packed breakfasts for us the morning we were driven to the airport in a spacious Mercedes by a large, handsome bouncer-looking fellow decked out in a great suit (at 5 in the morning, nice), even taking into account that we had drunk every bottle of sparkling water in the minibar--they packed us two huge bottles, which subtly illustrates the extremely high level of customer service at this establishment. The Grand Hotel Praha has the best hotel breakfast spread I have ever experienced, bar none, and the first floor is a beautiful patisserie and gelato cafe (which means the whole hotel smells like a fresh, warm pastry). And since the whole square outside the hotel is filled with outdoor cafes, even at night and in the winter (heaters and umbrellas!), it was the perfect place for a nightcap before walking 200 feet to our room. Amazing, and totally romantic.
Absolutely unforgettable and lovely
We cannot say enough good things about the hotel. There is no way you can get the better location and view in Prague as the hotel is located just opposite the Astronomical Clock and Old Town Square.
We stayed there for 2 nights for my boyfriend's birthday between 5th and 7th of March 2006. We had amazing room with a view overlooking the clock.
The bed was very big and comfortable and the bathroom was clean and lovely. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel and would suggest that you request a room with a view of the square. (this costs about 20-40 euro more per night, but you will enjoy every penny of it)
Breakfast is very good as well and offers variety of choices (continental buffet style). The staff were kind and helpful.
Usually the price you are paying for this hotel is in the top range, but we had a great deal with Prague.st. Thank you to these agents, who were very professional.
If you should go to Old Town Square be sure to stay at The Grand
for - the view, the ambience, the food, the rooms and the staff. We had a most memorable stay in this lovely hotel overlooking the Astronomical Clock and Old Town Square. I admit that usually we are quite hard to please but this time we really couldn't find anything to complain about. Thank you to everyone who made us so welcome. The driver who collected us from the airport, the guide (pre-booked through TravelCook) the wonderful Ballet at The State Opera booked through Pragueexperience followed by supper at a fantastic restaurant). My advice to anyone is - do yourself a favour and contact the experts it is worth every penny you pay (which actually wasn't that much. Final thankyou to Tomas at travelCook - you are a star! We left our hearts in Prague - we will be back.
this hotel was great, our party stayed here and at its sister hotel apostolistic residence for 7 nights from 29th November last year when we got married we booked 10 rooms and were given a discount of 10% and we were upgraded free of charge to the best room in the hotel (only in my opinion) it was huge and overlooking the clock which is supposed to cost extra, the bed was the biggest i have ever seen and the bathroom was simply great.
the breakfast was nice too, plenty of hot bacon and eggs, a good selection of cerals, cakes and fruit and nice staeaming hot filter coffee.
as a nice touch the hotel left us a bottle of champagne and a card on the day of our wedding, all the staff were really nice in general, i dealt from start to finish with a lady called jana she is also great i ammended my booking several times and she was always nice and helpful i could not fault the service of this hotel its the best and nicest hotel i have ever stayed in, the waiters in the cafe and restaurant are very nice also but the food in the restaurant is not the best in town and is very overpriced i would reccomend kolkovna we had our reception there and for 25 people having a 3 course meal several bottles of wine a few cocktails, a few double jd's and coke and it came to about £400.
Lovely hotel - avoid room 216
As far as location goes, this couldn't be bettered. The reasonable cost of the hotel makes this a star find. The staff were most helpful and the rooms were clean and cosy. Our only criticism was that we were in room 216, which, whilst it doesn't overlook the square was noisy due to an air conditioning unit outside the window and the fact that the room overlooked the courtyard used by kitchen staff. Whilst this doesn't sound terrible, it was very audible at night and did disturb our sleep. Nevertheless, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel and would just suggest that you request a room with a view of the square.
Breakfast is included in the price and is well worth going (continental buffet style), similarly, the breakfast room doubles as a cafe and bar at night and is a pleasant vantage point.
As regards getting to the hotel - use the white mini buses parked outside the airport, which charge a set fare of about 480k for the 2 of you and will take you to the door of your hotel. You can also book them for your return journey. We found them to be reliable and helpful.
Had it not been for the noise, this review would have given 5 stars. Prague itself lived up to all expectations, and we were fortunate to go while the Christmas market was up and running. Highly recommended.
Lovely views of Christmas Market
We stayed for two nights at the Grand Hotel on our second visit to Prague. We had lovely views of Old Town Square and the Christmas Market . Our room (215) was directly opposite the clock and we weren't disturbed at all (very efficient double glazing). Great cakes in the coffee shop!
A perfect hotel choice!
My Mother and I just arrived home from a fantastic five day vacation in Prague, where we thoroughly enjoyed our accomodations at the Grand Hotel Prague. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast offerings were varied and delicious, the room was large and spotless, and the location was perfect for us to explore most areas by foot. The availability of free internet was also a pleasant surprise. We had considered staying at many different hotels in various areas of town and at various price levels. In retrospect, we made an excellent hotel choice and would highly recommend the Grand Hotel Prague on the old Town Square.
Great Hotel! Great location!
We spent 7 nights at this wonderful small hotel right on Old Town Square. (22 rooms with elevator) In fact our room looked out directly on to the Clock at the Town Hall. Rooms are furnished with antiques; baths are modern and well equipt; great breakfast included each morning. The staff was so very helpful and tried their best to be of service at every opportunity. This was a very confortable stay and I would highly recommend this establishment. It is relatively new and I am sure it will be much in demand in the months to come.
Loved the Clock
My wife and I returned yesterday ( 29th August 2005 ) after a great weekend in Prague. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Praha in the Old Town with a view opposite the Astronomical Clock. The hotel room was excellent having been recently modernised. The staff were all extremely helpful and we would happily stay at the hotel again. The breakfast included in the price was exceptional and set us up for the day. The view of the Astronomical Clock and resultant crowds on the hour provided additional entertainment. A cautious note the Clock strikes on the hour. ( 24 Hours a day ). Whilst this did not bother me my wife found it kept her awake. Also the cake shop on the ground floor whilst it served delicious cakes it was the most expensive coffee we had in Prague. £3 a cup. All in all though we would highly recommend the hotel for other visitors to Prague.

... are some very good views over the old town from the little courtyard at the other end.
I walked back across the river via the Manesuv Bridge and stopped at another restaurant close to the hotel called Mlejnice for lunch. Had a big glass of the local dark, sweet beer which is called kozel (very refreshing after my recent walk in Prague's punishing heat) and some beef goulash served in a hollowed out loaf of bread. The goulash was rich, tasty and delicious and topped ...
... pyramid again. We visited the market nearby briefly and got some candy for ourselves. (We're monsters.)
To finish off the day we went up to visit Petrin Hill, which was full of tourists, so not quite my cup of tea but it was cool to get such a vast view of the city from the top. We finally finished off the day with gelato that we got from the store, right beside our hotel no less. (Seriously, we're trash.)
Fun day in Prague!
... Slavic state to organise after the Great Migrations. After the collapse of the Moravian Empire in 907 AD, the Duchy came under autonomous rule before its inauguration into the Holy Roman Empire in the 11th century, becoming the Kingdom of Bohemia in 1212. By the 14th century the extent of Bohemia's influence was vast with the king ruling over not only Bohemia but also other territories, together forming the Crown of Bohemia. The king also had sovereignty to elect the ...

We caught the tram back down one stop to have a beer and some lunch. Because it was a beer festival, the idea was that you would go and buy a glass for 50CZK or 2€ and then you could take it around to all the different stalls and try the different local brews. Prices varied between 25CZK and 50CKZ so it was pretty ...
